On our blog today, we are talking about some of the smart upgrades you can make to your rental property in San Ramon. The idea is to improve the look of your home and make it more appealing to high quality renters while keeping those improvements cost effective.
One of the easiest things you can do is to upgrade your flooring. Put in durable tile or hardwood or laminate flooring. We have found that laminate is especially durable and it can withstand more traffic.
It’s also a good idea to upgrade your kitchen. Get some good ideas for improvements so that it’s a highly functional area that’s also modern. Think about putting in new appliances. Stainless steel appliances are very popular right now, and so are granite counters.
When you are improving the look of your home and making upgrades that will attract ideal renters, think about what your home needs and what tenants will need. Exterior and interior paint need to look fresh and new. In this day and age, you also need to think about water conservation. Do some landscaping with drought resistant plants. Remember that curb appeal is important to potential renters.
In addition to making sure the property looks updated, you also need to make sure your systems are properly functioning and well maintained. Take a look at your heating system and your air conditioning unit. It’s important to have updated plumbing and electrical systems running through the house. Your windows are also a major place where you can make improvements. Single pane windows are not very effective or efficient. They produce condensation, so update to modern dual pane windows. These look modern and they are a lot more efficient.
